A day after Varun Gandhi said that he made ‘people like the Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party’s joint candidate untie his shoelace’, the BJP lawmaker from Sultanpur, courted fresh controversy by terming leader of alliance “Pakistanis”.
Gandhi made the remarks while campaigning for his mother and Union Minister Maneka Gandhi from Sultanpur. This time Varun Gandhi,is contesting from Maneka Gandhi’s constituency Pilibhit, his mother is contesting from his parliamentary seat Sultanpur.
Addressing the public, Varun Gandhi said, “This time, vote for Mother India. My mother is contesting the elections. She is a good person, she believes in humanity, she is honest and there is no taint on her in the last 35 years. But still, I have come to meet you on the behalf of Mother India, not for my mother.” As he asked, “Are you ready to vote for Mother India,” the people replied ‘We are ready’. Further, Varun Gandhi asked the people to refrain from voting for the alliance and claimed, “these are Pakistani people. Are they or not?”
They ordered firing on ‘Rambhakts’ (followers of lord Ram) and that is why they will feel the curse. His own son threw him out of the house and now public will throw him out.”
He was referring to the alleged strained relations between SP president Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam.

Further, Varun said “People who used to collect cow dung cakes in Saifai around 15 to 20 years ago are today roaming around in cars worth Rs 5 crore. These people have just one agenda to fill their pockets. You all should unite for patriotism, else the country’s flag would be lowered.”
On Saturday, Varun had stoked a controversy when he made a reference to his Nehru-Gandhi lineage at a rally in Uttar Pradesh and targeted Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) candidate from Sultanpur.
He said such people untied his shoelaces, while campaigning for his mother.
“A human being without dignity is as good as dead. I just want to say that you don’t need to fear anyone except God. No one can do anything to you. I am standing here. I am the son of Sanjay Gandhi and I get my shoelace untied by such people,” he said. “Nobody has the courage to speak to me in a raised voice,” he said.
